Although we visited on a wet day when it was too muddy to walk round the farm the experience of seeing the kites fed was amazing. Truly unforgettable, at least 100 kites and 2 buzzards. Able to chat after to the staff who were very knowledgeable. Very nice shop.

Not seen anything as good as this before. As a keen photographer i booked the hide and was so close to the kites it was fantastic. They swooped on mass and really were a sight to see. The hide was clean and very well positioned as were the other hides. The car parking was great and we were greeted by... More

We have been here a couple of times and there is nowhere else like it, literally hundreds of these birds swoop down to feed it's quite a spectacle, to think it wasn't long ago they were almost extinct!, there is now a coffee shop on site and also camping is available, well done to the owners, thank you for an...

No point in turning up early on wet day as nothing to do. Visitors centre seen better times TV and interactive screen disconnected. Feeding well worth seeing.

We were visiting the area for a couple of days and wanted to find something to do for an hour or so on the way up. I am so glad that we found this place by looking at the great reviews on tripadvisor. I have always been amazed if I see one or two red kites when driving in the... More

Friendly staff in cafe but very expensive. Take a mortgage out to have a hit chocolate . Over 500 kites today. Amazing sight, one not to be missed and one we'll remember for a long time.

Went there with hubby and our dog (kept on lead). I didn't read the reviews this time before visiting, despite I usually do. We've arrived not long after feeding time (2 pm). Ticket was £6/adult to get in. To be honest, we felt that it was a bit expensive as we thought someone would talk to us about the red... More

We travelled for 3 hours to see the Kites and they didn't disappoint, more than 200 birds performed their acrobatics right in front of us.

There must have been 200-300 red kites in the sky above us. Amazing sight, well worth the £6 entry fee.
